The CBF is a young regional Fund founded in 2012, which aims to provide resources to support activities related to conservation and protection of biodiversity activities, not only in systems of protected areas but in all areas of environmental importance for each of the 8 countries that comprise it.
The CBF manages an endowment fund, channeling resources at national level between the participating countries, which subsequently open calls related to finance public and private protected areas, watersheds, seascapes, coastal marine fisheries resources and forest resources.
For now, the main beneficiaries of the CBF are its National Environmental Funds members, which find themselves in different moments of being establishment. Once these Funds come into operation, they will receive resources that may be part of sub-grants to national or local programs.
